Commissioning round for ‘ilDÁNA’

The Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and TG4, in association with Galway Film Centre, are delighted to announce the launch of ‘ilDÁNA’.

 

‘ilDÁNA’ is designed to support the production of landmark creative documentary films on the arts in Irish. ‘ilDÁNA’ will provide film-makers with an opportunity to make distinctive ambitious works to enrich the TG4 primetime programme schedule and have a national impact with audiences.

 

“Following an impressive list of award-winning productions funded during our twenty-year collaboration on the Splanc! scheme, TG4 welcomes this new initiative which will ensure that landmark arts documentaries continue in the fabric of TG4’s programme schedule” said Proinsias Ní Ghráinne, Commissioning Editor, TG4.

 

Films commissioned for ‘ilDÁNA’ will provide a definitive creative treatment of their arts subject. All artistic disciplines will be considered. Contemporary subjects are preferred but contemporary treatments of historical works may also be considered. Two films will be funded with a budget of up to €80,000 each in the first season of the scheme. Both will launch with a dedicated cinema screening and will have a theatrical window before broadcast to a primetime TG4 audience in Spring 2018.

 

Fionnuala Sweeney, Head of Film in The Arts Council noted “The Arts Council is delighted to build on its long-standing partnership with TG4 with the launch of ilDÁNA. This exciting scheme, with its built-in theatrical window and a dedicated primetime broadcast on TG4, will enable film-makers to make bold and ambitious film works on the arts for Irish audiences”.

 

Galway Film Centre will administer the commissioning of the ‘ilDÁNA’ films and TG4's ‘Terms of Trade’ will apply. Representatives from TG4, the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Galway Film Centre will select the projects for ‘ilDÁNA’.

 

Galway Film Centre are extremely happy to be involved in a new scheme with a very healthy budget that will hopefully allow film-makers to take creative risks and make something daring and exciting for both cinema and television” said Declan Gibbons, Galway Film Centre.
